    Still no. 1 is a portrait of someone with the initials DH, not from a film whose title has those initials. And it is definitely from RKO Radio, about 1933. So who is the RKO actor from about 1933 with the initials DH? Confirming a couple of others: No. 7 is from "Murder In the Clouds" (1934) - Warner Bros. No. 8 - the guy is Wallace Ford.
  3. Yes, as delighted to see they included Gloria Jean and Susan Miller, I was very surprised and disappointed that Mary Carlisle was not there. As I watched it for the first time, all through it, I was expecting the next name to be Mary Carlisle. Then it ended...and no Mary C. Anyway, good job, TCM.
  4. It's on YouTube, just search "TCM Remembers 2018". I just watched it a couple of times there.

    Primetime lineup for Wednesday still a mystery?

    So, it looks like the films to be shown on Dec. 12 will be the new additions to the Film Registry, so KING OF JAZZ will not be on, at least not that night.

    Primetime lineup for Wednesday still a mystery?

    It may be unlikely they'd reschedule it already, but one title that might be shown on Wednesday night is KING OF JAZZ (1930). It was originally scheduled for Dec. 11 but later replaced by STAGECOACH. Reportedly KING OF JAZZ is to be rescheduled, so let's see if it shows up on Wednesday night, Dec. 12.

    TCM's Christmas Promos (2018) - A wonderful (l) present!

    I'm not sure how to make this image show here, but if it works to click on to this link you can see another misspelling I caught on TCM back in 2009: Borgnine, Ernest (Borgine) TCM 012911.bmp

    Laurel and Hardy - 12/06

    Lots of Laurel & Hardy on TCM in December: In addition to the films on Dec. 6, the shorts TOWED IN A HOLE and HELPMATES are scheduled for Dec. 10. The feature HOLLYWOOD PARTY (1934) is coming up on Dec. 11, and BABES IN TOYLAND (1934) is scheduled for Dec. 24. And, there's more coming up in January! On the 7th there'll be a whole night of Stan & Ollie! Thanks, TCM!

    TCM Schedule Changes/Cancellations

    Apparently there was a problem that has been cleared up. The movie is being re-scheduled. Thanks to all those who made it happen!

    TCM Schedule Changes/Cancellations

    I see that KING OF JAZZ (1930) has been dropped from the Dec. 11 schedule. VERY disappointed. What happened, TCM?

    Shorts not mentioned on TCM schedule

    For anyone keeping track, I saw a short on TCM last night that (so far) has not appeared on their schedule for Nov. 27. It was the 1931 Vitaphone short "The Grand Dame" starring Patsy Kelly. It was shown just before the 1933 WB feature "Grand Slam" - the idea, clearly was to run the short preceding a feature that has a similar title.

    MovieCollectorOH: website change

    MovieCollectorOH, In order to make sure you know about it for your project (listing every film shown on TCM) I wanted to let you know that they ran a short last night that is not listed on the schedule. It was the 1931 Vitaphone short "The Grand Dame" starring Patsy Kelly. It was shown at 3 AM (eastern time), just before the feature "Grand Slam" (so technically it was shown on Nov. 27, 2018). Keep up the good work!

    Red Hot Chorus Girls!!!!

    The short "Over the Counter" (1932) will be shown on TCM on Saturday morning, Nov. 24 at 1:36 AM (eastern time).

    George Formby

    Thank you, TCM for the night of George Formby movies (Nov. 16). More, please!

    George Formby

    Yes, some might find his comedy a bit too silly (and too British). But I've been a big fan for many years and was very pleasantly surprised when I saw that TCM had scheduled four of his movies (even just one would have been great!) for Nov. 16. This was the first time I've seen a George Formby movie on American TV since a local channel ran his 1937 comedy "Keep Fit" way back in 1980.

    Mary Carlisle

    I remember when she died some obits on her said that she was the first actress with whom Bing Crosby worked more than once. Too bad they couldn't have found more interesting facts. That's not correct anyway - offhand I can think of two other actresses Bing worked with twice before he did with Mary Carlisle: Marjorie "Babe" Kane (in two Mack Sennett shorts, 1932 and 1933) and Kitty Carlisle (in two Paramount features, 1934). But I did enjoy TCM's tribute to her, especially "College Humor" as it is not often shown.

    Red Hot Chorus Girls!!!!

    That's the 1932 MGM Technicolor short "Over the Counter". If you want to see it again, and don't want to wait for it to turn up again on TCM, it is available on the DVD "Classic Musical Shorts from the Dream Factory" available from Warner Archives.

    No Demon Seed?

    Turns out they ran DEMON SEED, not SWAMP THING.

    Grammer question pls

    You mean about how to spell "grammer"? Maybe we should ask grammer or grand-dad!

    Probably a tough movie to ID, but here goes.

    So glad to have helped! PICTURE MOMMY DEAD isn't really the kind of movie I am most into (prefer silents, 1930s & 1940s) but am very familiar with it because one of the stars, Susan Gordon was a good friend of mine and I have made an effort over many years to locate and see as many of her movies and TV appearances as I can (and in some cases, get copies to her of titles she either didn't have, or in some cases, had never even seen). This was her last movie. She appeared in one more (of four total) "My Three Sons" episodes after this, then retired at age 17. She led a happy life but very sadly, passed away in 2011 at only age 62.

    Could it be PICTURE MOMMY DEAD (1966)? It doesn't exactly match your descriptions, but I thought it's worth asking.

    Question about "The Women"

    Of course! I can get them in the PM or in the AM!

    Marion Davies & Leslie Howard

    No, not quite that often. In fact according to MovieCollectorOH's master listing of everything ever shown on TCM, STAND-IN has been shown on TCM only 5 times, ever, most recently in July 2012. http://moviecollector.us/reports/TCM_SCHEDULES_SUMMARY_alpha.htm I too was disappointed STAND-IN wasn't shown this month, nor even mentioned in the otherwise excellent documentary on Leslie Howard (although I do understand that they can't always mention every film in these kinds of documentaries).

    Question about "The Women"

    Oh okay. Not familiar with any recent version.
